Nearly any invention that is new, useful and nonobvious can be patented. A patent provides an exclusive right to prevent others from making, using or selling your invention for a period of up to 20 years.

By granting such rights, patents provide incentives for innovators, allowing innovators to gain exclusivity over a new product or process, develop a strong market position, and earn revenue through licensing.

There are three different types of U.S. patents, namely, utility patents, design patents and plant patents.

  • Utility patents - protect new, useful, and nonobvious processes, machines, manufactures, compositions of matter, and any improvements thereof.
  • Design patents - protect the ornamental appearance of a product.
  • Plant patents - protect a new or distinct variety of a plant.
